NB echos some questions of mine a few days back on IRC about Subprojects
and submodules 

If e.g. you just 'git add' a subdirectory which is a git repository, git
adds it as a subproject but doesn't initiate any entry in .gitmodules
since it is the job done by submodule and git core itself is
agnostic of those beasts.

But having then this "Subproject"s which aren't registered as submodules
(and I haven't found any other use for them besides being a submodule)
brakes "git submodule" commands, e.g.

$> git submodule

fatal: no submodule mapping found in .gitmodules for path 'ds000017

which then stops without even looking at other submodules.

I think it would be more logical to make it a 'warning:' not a 'fatal:' and

Thank you for consideration
